Tom Segura is a man on the move; he just can’t seem to stay in one place for very long. That might be why the life of a standup comedian sounded so appealing to him. After working as a volunteer in 12 U.S. states and in six foreign countries, Tom moved out to L.A. to pursue a career in stand-up. Since that time he’s made somewhat of a name for himself as both a comedian and an actor. Keep an eye out for Tom in a club near you, on Comedy Central’s "Live at Gotham" or in his short film Cutman.
FACTOID - Tom is married to lovely comedienne Christina Pazsitzky
Justin The Artistic Horse
A horse is a horse, of course of course, but no one can paint like a horse... uh, what? Yes, there is a painting horse, and his name is Justin. And unlike many aspiring artists, he's actually sold a number of paintings. When his owner Adonna saw him drawing in the dirt with her whip, she knew there was more to Justin than met the eye. She soon had him in front of a canvas with a paintbrush in his mouth painting masterpieces. Check out his paintings. Justin on facebook.
